“Exceptional restoration and a good time”
Review of Tivoli Theatre

Tivoli Theatre
Reviewed 20 August 2014

Seeing The Beatles A Hard Day’s Night was our first time to see a show at the Tivoli, which completed an extensive restoration about two years ago. Now, it’s just like stepping back in time to its original 1928 Spanish Revival charm. The original small sidewalk ticket booth, the alcove art, wrought iron balcony boxes, the red velvet curtain, and starry-sky ceiling are now pristine, and there’s a digital marquee and first-rate sound and projection systems. A volunteer crew now runs the theater, and the crowd is welcomed with opening announcements, not assaulted with advertising. Concessions are reasonably priced. It’s a unique kind of experience these days, well worth the $5 price of admission. We stayed overnight at the Canyon Inn at the nearby McCormick’s Creek State Park and were able to enjoy the park and a visit to the Owen Valley Winery the next day.

We just learned of the restoration of this theater when a volunteer invited us over for a tour and a movie. This place is beautiful, classy, authentic and extremely well done. The volunteers could not be more proud or more welcoming. We totally enjoyed the evening and the movie. The sound quality and picture were top-of-the-line. Concessions classic for theater and not ridiculously expensive- $10 for a box of M&M's, 2 bottles of water and a bag of popcorn- what a deal! I highly recommend this place and know regionally, it will be a big draw with the flexibility it has for great movies, live performance, meeting space and events. A real treasure brought back to life! We will definitely go back!

This theater is very special. Not only is the renovation top notch, but the sound and projection is amazing. Well worth a drive for a special outing or unique date. Dinner at the state park is a good combo!

Went and saw a current movie at this rebuilt theatre. Great value only $5 for adult ticket. Theatre, is run by a non-profit with a very friendly volunter staff. If you go to see a movie, buy tickets in advance, they sell out fast!!

I was so proud to be part of the first audience since the Tivoli Theater was restored by the Cook Group. After watching the first showing of "Oz, the Great and Powerful," a ten-minute presentation was shown on how the restoration came about, and provided some film clips of the work that was done to restore this great historic landmark to an even better than original state. I hope everyone in the area will come to see the great craftsmanship that was put into this restoration.
